The Rockettes® Fancy Box is one of the newer boxes offered by Fancy Box. The world famous Rockettes® are a precision dance company founded in 1925. Since 1932 they have performed at Radio City Music Hall in Manhattan (source).
As with all Fancy Boxes, this box has a guaranteed minimum value of $80 (retail prices). The Rockettes® box is supposed to contain "their favorite items, from dance to beauty, fashion to fitness". I received the very first Rockettes® box last month, and it was a great box. I was hoping for the same in October. The Rockettes® even posted a comment on my Instagram that said "Stay tuned for our fall-themed October box!"... a bit of a spoiler there!
Echo Design Slouchy Hat & Fingerless Gloves (~$50)
I couldn't find this anywhere online. Fancy is selling a different style of Echo Fingerless Gloves for $35 and a similar style hat goes for $35 on the Echo Website. Based on that, I estimated the value somewhere in the middle. Given that this set isn't sold online anymore, it's probably old stock from a previous season.
Kitsch Deco Bun Pin in Silver ($24)
At first I was thinking this wasn't something for me, but I occasionally sport a sock bun, so this might be a fun accessory to try, especially around the holidays. The model pictures on the Kitsch website make them look really nice.
DCER Temporary Tattoos ($6.42 US - converted from 5 euros)
I don't get the appeal of temporary tattoos on adults.
Ultra Mod Hand Chain ($25)
What the? From other reviews I saw, people received this pretty and delicate bracelet from LyndyLou Designs. And I got this monstrosity. Not only is it hideous, but it arrived broken. The chain is not supposed to be like that above, the two ends are supposed to be connected. As well, the bracelet itself is all bent out of shape and warped. My last Rockette's Fancy box had a broken item as well. I can probably fix the chain with some pliers and try to bend the cuff back into shape... and then it will be added to the donation pile.
fall-themed" October box. What I received was a knit hat and gloves with a three other random items. There is nothing fall-themed about this box. While the products do fall into the categories of fashion and dance, I don't feel like this is a box that really represents the Rockettes and I have a hard time believing they had any part in the curation of this box. It's the same feeling I had after the disappointing September Nicky Hilton Fancy Box. It feels like the products were haphazardly thrown together without much thought or care and the lack of product info card supports that.
I've cancelled my subscription to the Rockettes® Fancy Box.
